NJ’s First Cat Cafe is Set to Open in Asbury Park

The moment cat-lovers throughout the Garden State have been waiting for is here


The trend that started in Japan and took off in NYC in 2014 has finally reached New Jersey. Cookman Avenue in downtown Asbury Park will be home to sweet furry residents in need of a home starting in late May.

Other than giving its patrons some seriously cute photo-ops, the owners have a far bigger goal in mind: getting unwanted kittens adopted. Catsbury Park partnered with local animal rescue organizations like Camden County Animal Shelter and the Monmouth County SPCA to help foster and find forever homes for orphaned felines.

Created by city resident D.J. Bornschein and managed by Jamie Nichols, Catsbury Park lets coffee and cat lovers alike sip their favorite teas or java and munch on snacks while getting to know cats that need a new home. Bornschein is currently working on a menu for cold and hot food with locals in the area. Go to catsburypark.com to learn more about the cafe’s plans and to make a donation for the cause.
